Bozaks and other large items (Altec etc) Iowa

Edit: Bozaks are sold, other items are still available.

These started out as B-300 Italian provincial cabinets. They have cut-outs for the 302 load (with tweeters mounted higher than other 302s) so I patiently searched for and bought the desirable aluminum cone mids and tweeters. I rebuilt the crossovers with Polypropylene capacitors and did the Tobin mods. I had some custom tinted tempered glass tops made for them. I have horn supertweeters/crossovers that I would be willing to sell, if desired. I've enjoyed using these for several years but have too many speakers currently so it's time for someone else to enjoy them. I'm pricing them at a loss in the hopes of an easy, local sale. Auditions are welcome. $500

Edit: other items available are 4pi speakers, Altec 511B horns, Altec 9440a amplifier, Altec H1505 tar-filled horn (Edit: no longer for sale), JBL 4560 horn bass bins, K15 Karlson cabinets. Local pickup only. I will add pictures and prices when I get a chance.

Altec 9440a. Partially recapped a few years ago. I’ve mainly used it to cover the bottom end of a tri-amped system, it controlled the woofers well. Heavy ~ 60# $450

The 4 Pi speakers were originally built by an AK friend of mine. The cabinets are made out of MDF. The fit and finish of the cabinets was a little rough so I coated them with a textured black coating. They have grey grill cloth, retractable handles and rubber feet (That can be swapped for spikes). They look nice to me but may seem a little “industrial“ to some that are used to veneered cabinets. The driver load is Eminence. I updated the crossovers last year with some premium circuit boards using Sonicap capacitors, Mills resistors and new air-coil inductors. They sound very good, IMO. I’m happy to have you audition them here with a variety of gear. I’d like to get $900 for the pair. They are heavy.

These have been covering the mid-bass for my portable outdoor system for several years. I have two pairs available. The better condition pair that is pictured is $200 and and the rougher pair is $50 (free with other purchase)

Allen Organ passive subwoofers, two pairs: These started life as HC-12 full range organ speakers. The mids and tweeters were removed and have been used for bass only in the setup below. $150 per pair.

Knight 615-HC 15" 16 ohm coaxial drivers. These are rebadged EV 15TRX sold under the Knight brand. High quality and heavy! They sound excellent and are a lot of great sound for the money. I used these in some Karlson cabinets, they were great with tube amplification. Some minor cosmetic issues but overall are in good shape and sound like they should. $300 obo.

H1505’s got me thinking about visiting Iowa all of a sudden. What are you looking for on those? Too bad you don’t have an extra set of H808’s.
 
Did you say... H1505 horn? What do I have that you want? :)
Edited to remove lengthy sarcasm.

Nate, have lots of cool things that I want :). I’m hoping that selling a few items will allow me to finish my theater speaker project. Cash would be preferred but I may consider trades if I’m able to sell enough to fund the project. Come on over for a visit sometime :)

Talk to me about that 80FR!
They're my bedroom system speakers. I run them full range in some simple quarter wave cabinets that originally had Wild Burro Betsy drivers. Once I heard the Stephens in them, I knew that's were they were meant to be. I usually run them full-range but occasionally use Heil AMTs as super tweeters brought in with a single capacitor as a crossover.

I only have one, unfortunately. I‘ll put up some pictures and a price in the original post once I have a chance to lug it inside.
 
JBL 4560 cabinets and Allen Organ subwoofers added to original post. I‘m open to considering offers to anything I have for sale after items are seen/heard.

Did you end up selling the Altec 1505 single? I noticed it’s still listed in the original post. Asking for a friend.;)
